Easy, Social, Swing (also known as IMPERIAL SWING)

Definition:
'Imperial Swing' is a cross between East Coast and West Coast Swing as it is done in slot and in the round.
It started at the Club Imperial in St Louis. George Edick, who owned the club, let teenagers dance on the lower level and the swing dancers of the time taught them what was learned from their trips to the east coast.
As people traveled around, they added parts of west coast, bop and Carolina shag to complement the dance and make it distinctive. People can tell the difference between St. Louis dancers and dancers from other parts of the country.
"The Imperial" has elements of "East Coast", "West Coast", "Carolina Shag" and "Bop".
